VOL. 39 SANTA FE, N. M., SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 21, 1903. NO. 309 SANTA MEX IT IS TO BE THE STATE OF MONTEZUMA The Compromise Measure on Statehood Bobs Up Again and Some Hope is Expressed by the Republicans That it Will Pass Before March 4 ITS SUCCESS WILL DEPEND ON THE ATTITUDE OF DEMOCRATS Washington,' Feb. 21. The senate re sumed its sitting again at 11 o'clodk with the doors closed and with ThurS' day's session proceeding. The presid' ing officer had scarcely taken his seat when the point of no quorum - was made. A sufficient number of senators soon responded and Mr. Morgan w about to proceed with his canal speech when there was a general request on the part of the senators to be allowed to transact some morning business Senator Cullom yielded to this demand and it soon became apparent that a very large volume of this business had accumulated. Mr. Cullom then moved an open ses sion of an hour for the transaction of legislative business. There was no ob jection and accordingly 20 minutes af ter the beginning of the session the doors were opened. The hour was giv en up largely to the introduction of bills and the making of committee re ports. The business had not proceeded far when Mr. Quay rose and said: "I merely rise to make my usual request with, I presume, the usual result, that on Thursday the 26th of February, a vote be taken on the omnibus state hood bill and all amendments without further debate." Messrs. Depew and Nelson objected simultaneously, and Mr. Quay took his seat with a wave of his hand to Mr. Alger who bad yielded the floor to him. A number of bills were passed. THE COMPROMISE AGAIN. Washington, Feb. 21. The statehood compromise, which is expected to un lock the present tangle in the senate and remove the blockade, proposes to admit two states, one Oklahoma, ac cording to Its present boundaries with a proviso that Indian Territory shall be added in 1906 when the treaty obliga tions with the Indians will not be in the way. The other Btate is to be com posed of New Mexico and Arizona, un der the name of Montezuma, with a proviso that when the present territory of Arizona has a population of 300,000 people it shall become a separate state providing that the people of the terri tory affected vote in favor of being di vided from New Mexico, Sanator Spooner has been entrusted with the leiral Questions Involved, especially In regard to the rights of Indian tribes In Indian Territory. While this compro mise will be acceptable to the Republi cans there Is yet considerable doubt about the Democrats and so far as can be learned, they will oppose It with vigor, which means defeat at this stage of the session.

NOW is formulated the Democrats may hold a conference and if a majority should agree to accept the bill, the minority will yild. However, this is only con jecture, but the men who are manage ing the situation express hope that some 9-srreement can be reached. The effect upon the canal treaty will at once be felt and Senator Quay and oth er statehood men will not try to pro long the debate on this measure. At the same time, the senators served no tice yesterday upon those who are pres sing the treaty that Senator Morgan should have full opportunity to present his views and amendments to the trea ty in an orderly manner and without undue pressure. Senators Teller, Du Dols ana Kawllns were especially em phatic when making these declarations, saying that even if the treaty had to go over until after March 4, the Ala bama senator should not be subjected to undue pressure. Mr. Mason gave notice that on Mon day he would ask the senate to take up the postoffice appropriation bill inv mediately after the disposition of the routine business. The senate then, on motion of Mr. Cullom, resumed consid eration of the Panama canal treaty in executive session. When the senate went into executive session for the sec ond time, Mr. Quay again took the floor and said he desired to present to the senate certain reports but that he was indisposed and therefore would like to have them read by the clerk. There was no objection and the reading clerk ac cordingly began the reading of a long report on the question of isthmian can als, which Mr. Quay sent up. THE HOUSE. Washington, Feb 21. At the opening of the session of the house today, Mr. Hemenway of Indiana, asked unani mous consent for the consideration of a bill to exempt from taxation the prop erty of the Daughters of the Revolution in the District of Columbia. Mr. Moon of Tennessee, objected, saying he would continue to object to the consideration of any bill by unanimous consent. Mr. Fowler of New Jersey, then moved that the house go into committee of the whole to consider the currency bill and pending that motion he asked that he control the time for the bill and Mr. Thayer of Massachusetts, against it. To this Mr. Bartlett of Georgia, objected, saying that -there was a difference of opinion on the Democratic side con cerning this question. The motion was carried 137 to 95. Accordingly the house went into committee, and Mr. Fowler, chairman of the committee on banking and currency, took the floor In support of his bill. t WW ww Stock Market. New York, Feb. 21.

FROM BELEN TO 6ALVEST0N. Another Old Plan of the Santa Fe Which Is Taking More Definite Shape. A dispatch from Topeka says: "Within the present year tho Santa Fe Railway company will announce a 300 mile extension to connect Belen N. M., with Galveston, Texas. Gen eral plans for, this extension have been already undo. It, will begin at Portales and will connect with the Gulf, Colorado and Santa Fu line probably at San Angelo, Texas. San Angelo Is the western terminus of the Gulf, Colorado and Santa Fe. It Is practically decided that the Santa Fa will continue its New Mexico cut-off' eastward from Llano Junction to Portales. This portion of the work has been temporarily held up, awaiting the outcome of the plan which the Santa Fe had In mind for building south from Dodge City to Liberal, and either paralleling the Rock Island, or securing trackage rights over the Rock Island from Liberal to Llano Junction." . A Jail Breaker Arretted. James McDanfel, alias J. L.

The American Consolidated Copper Company Has Bought the Lena Smelter at Lordsburg. The last obstacle against the sale of the Silver City smelter was removed last week when the American Smelting and Refining Company signed papers which caused their lease on the same to expire and left the Hearsts in a position to sell. ' The plant was sold Thursday to the Comanche Mining and Milling Company. Many improvements are contemplated and the company expects to produce most of the ore required for the furnace, although custom work will be done. The smelter has a capacity for treating 250 tons per month. The Silver Cell mine, at Plnoa Altos, has been put In running order recently and the Dimmlck Brothers are turning out silver bricks in quantities. & new mill is in process oi erection ai the mine of the Arizona Mining com pany at Plnos Altos. This Is one of the best producing mines at the camp. Judge Ileming brought the good news to Silver City, that a flow of water had been encountered at the Dottotn oi ine Neosho shaft, owned by tho Allesandro Mining company. The now averages 10,000 gallons a day and the shaft will be sunk deeper. A fifty-ton loacher will be installed. This flow has exploded the theory that water could not be had In the Burro mountains at anv reasonable depth and paves the way for new enter prises. Tne L,ena concentrator at ijorusuurg has been sold to the Amorican Con solidated Copper company at quite a large consideration. B. L. Berkey of the Berkey Mining Machinery company of El Paso has Inspected tho property preparatory to adding new machinery. The presont production from tho iron mines of Flerro and Hanover is 1,000 tons dally averaging 58 per cent excess. A large part is shipped to Pueblo by the Colorado Fuel and Iron and the rest to El Paso for smelter flux. FARMING PAYS IN THE SANTA FE VALLEY Some Figures by Superintendent Clinton J. Crandall That Are Startling Though True. Santa Fe, N. M., Feb. 17, 1903. Prof. James G. Halapleus, Toledo,-Ohio. Dear Sir; The Editor oj, the New Mexican requests me to write you rela tive to the success I have had in raising vegetables on the Indian school farm here. I have not retained the exact fig ures or statistics, not supposing that my observations would be required In the future. Last summer I gave the New Mexican the result In planting 3-4 of an acre of. onions; if I remember aright, we raised about 15,000 pounds of onions to the acre; what struck every body hard was the fact that at the price charged for onions In the city, one acre would yield an Income of about 1900. Lhad excellent success with other vegetables. Carrots were raised on the Indian school farm here weigh ing 84 ounces each. An acre of carrots would yield about 100 tons and cabbage is equally as prolific. Give us the wa ter and one acre of this soil together with our climate and this is equal to ten acres In any other state or place that I know of, and I have lived In many. I expect to sink a deep well at the Indian school next summer, expen ding 16,000, If necessary, attempting to get artesian water. Respectfully, ' C. J. CRANDALL. Superintendent of Gov. Ind.

PURSUIT OF BANK ROBBERS Tracy Methods Have Been Successfully Adopted by Bill Rudolph and Frank Lewis. AGAIN MADE THEIR ESCAPE Entire Town of Union, Missouri, is in Arms and it Seems Im possible That the Rob bers Can Long Elude Them. St. Louis, Mo., Feb. 21. Special dls patches to the Post-Dispatch indicate that William Rudolph and Frank Lew is, the Union, Mo., bank robbers, who were located In a cabin near ltichview, Ills., have again escaped and a posse of citizens, in addition to that of Sheriff Howe, is being formed to pursue and capture them if possible. The entire community is in arms. According to reports from communities through which the robbers, have passed, they have adopted the Tracy tactics, intiml dating farmers and threatening to kill nny posse that may be sent In pursuit They converse only with women and children, from whom all - the details concerning them have been learned ex cept the general description given by a hunter who encountered them in the woods on Friday, They approach a farm house and standing some distance away call loudly until some one makes his appearance. If it is a man, they keep on talking to him until he comes up closer and then they throw their rifles down on hjm and order him to leave the premises. Like Tracy they accompany this order with a threat to massacre the entire family if any at tempt is made to summon help. In this way they have obtained food. At one farm house they found the farmer's wife and children alone. They ordered her to get breakfast and chatted freely while she was cooking the meal. All questions concerning themselves they parried. The man supposed to be Ru dolph stood on guard, while the other ate, and Lewis then acted as picket. ANOTHER SH00TIN6 AT RATON.

The women fled to Clark & Hen- drie's saloon. Prltzer followed, but was stopped by Hendrie and told to leave. Pritzer sprang upon Hendrie, who was unarmed, and stabbed him in the neck, Inflicting a severe wound. He then left the sa loon and hurried to Raton, purchased a revolver, and went to the depot with the evident intention of boarding passenger train No. 2. . Bruce, a porter in Hendrie's saloon, followed Prltzer to Raton and notified the marshal, who, accompanied by Bruce, went to' the depot. Pritzer was standing on the platform when the mar shal and Bruce approached from behind. Kruger placed his band on Pritzer's shoulder and told him that he was un der arrest. Pritzer jumped to one side, drew his revolver and emptied the six chambers into the two men. Kruger also brought his revolver into play and bullets rained for several seconds.

NEW MEXICO SCHOOL OF MINES Opportunities for a Practical and Theoretical Course in Mining Engineering, Metallurgy and Allied Sciences That Cannot be Equalled at Any Other Scientific School. VALUABLE RECENT ACQUISITION IN THE SOCORRO SiHELTER One of the neatest and most attrac tive publications that has come to this office is the brochure issued by the New Mexico School of Mines at Socorro, which contains the advance sheets of the annual register relating chiefly to the courses of study offered. The com plete register will be Issued about May 1. The brochure was printed at the School of Mines press and Is handsome, attractive and well gotten up. The cover Is artistic and the results from putting out such a statement of the resources and advantages of the school cannot help but be satisfactory. The board of trustees of the school consists of Governor M. A. Otero and Superintendent of Public Instruction J. Francisco Chaves, ex-offlcio, Juan Jose Baca of Socorro, president; C. T. Brown of Socorro, secretary-treasurer; Cap tain A. B. Fitch and F. C. Bartlett of Magdalena, and J. E. Smith of Socorro. The name of each member of the facul ty is followed by a brief but compre hensive sketch of his career. The School of Mines was founded by act of the legislature of 1889 and an organization was effected under a sub sequent act approved February 28, 1891. Plans were at once adopted for the buildings and early in 1892 p, circular setting forth the aims of the school was issued. The following year a president was chosen and students in chemistry were admitted, but the mining school was not opened until the tutumu of 1895. The location of the institution at Socorro was particularly fortunate In that it renders easily accessible to the students a large number of mines of all kinds, smelters, Irrigation systems and other engineering works. Many of the most famous mines in the southwest are within a few hours' ride of the school. The surrounding country Is rich in illustrations of geological for LEGISLATIVE POINTERS. It is probable that the assembly may not hold sessions on Monday in order to celebrate Washington's birthday, which falls on Sunday, tomorrow. Representative W. F. McCash of Union county, never held public office before. His present position as repre sentative In the legislative assembly from Union county is his first exper ience in that line. So far as the Council is concerned, the American flag shall not be desecrated In any manner and any Insult offered the flag In New Mexico is punishable by a fine of not to exceed WOO and Impris onment not to exceed 109 days or both. The bill Is by Mr. Duncan. The Council bill to pay a bounty Of $2 for each coyote, wild cat or lynx killed and $20 for each wolf, lobo, panther, mountain lion or bear, was amended yesterday so that levies shall be made by the counties to pay the amounts al ready owed for the animals already killed. Under the terms of the bill Introduc ed by Mr. Martinez and passed by the Council, justices of the peace will be elected at the same time other county officers are, beginning In November, 1904. Those elected at that election will take their office on the first Monday in February following, but after that the term of office will begin on January 1, following the election. The bill Introduced in the Council yesterday morning by Mr. Hughes to provide for a more efficient quarantine, is presented at the request of the Ter ritorial Board of Health, and Is to give that body power to quarantine more ef ficiently In case ' of an emergency. The cause of the bill Is the epidemic of diphtheria which is now existing among the Pueblo Indians. Mr. Jaramlllo offered a sarcastic amendment to the bill providing for the stricter enforcement of the Sunday law. Where it provides that sheriffs, deputy sheriffs, constables and mar shals shall Inspect saloons and gam bling houses on Sunday and see that they are closed, Mr. Jaramlllo wished' to strike out all the officers named and insert therein "Senator Beverldge." Council Bill No. 68 which was passed yesterday Is by -Mr. Hawkins, and pro vides for a fine of $10 to $50 or Imprison ment for not more than 60 days for cutting, breaking or Injuring any ditch, flume, pipe line or- : reservoir. Where the line la used" to convey .water to any mations and structures. The ideal of the institution is the practical training and directing of young men to take ac tive part In the development of the mineral wealth of the country and the world. The natural surroundings of the school create a mining atmosphere which is not found in schools located farther away from the mines and mountains. There is a broad practical experience during the entire course. The proximity of the school to many mines afford opporunity to studying the most modern methods of mining as well as the native methods which have been followed for so many decades. The Held for original scientific research in New Mexico is unrivaled as the govern ment has made no investigations. Much of the advance work of the school Is and will be continued in the line of original research and the results will be made known through bulletins from time to time. The brochure gives the courses In de tail and the requirements for admis sion. From the School of Mines press Is issued the Mining Quarterly, the an nual report, the annual register, the department bulletins and the reports of the Geological Survey. During the summer, practical field work is follow ed and many long excursions are un dertaken to more distant mining fields. Among the professors and students are maintained the Engineering Society, the Scientific Association and the Min ing Club. The library and museum are . complete. The buildings are located In a campus of 20 acres and consist of the Chemical laboratory. engineering hall, and the Socorro buiiuing." The acquisi tion of the Rio Grande Smelting Works with its 280 acres of land and 30 build ings gives the school an advantage of practical equipment and opportunity for practical work that is unequalled by any similar school In the country. community for domestic purposes the fine is from $D0 to $100 and imprison ment for 30 to 60 days. Any person bathing in any reservoir shall be fined from $10 to $25: The bill passed by the Council yes terday on Sunday observance included the provisions of the bill Introduced by Mr. Amado Chaves In the morning. The bill requires an Inspection to be made by proper police officers of saloons and gambling rooms on Sunday and district attorneys are required to assist in the prosecution of all cases brought against those found violating the law. If offi cers fail to perform this duty they shall be removed by the governor. The line for violation is from $25 to $100 and for gambling from $5 to $25. Liquor and gambling licences shall not be valid on Sunday. W. E. Llndsey of Portales, who was sent by the people of that town to San ta Fe for the purpose of procuring the creation of the new county of Roosevelt, on yesterday received the following dis patch from the people of that town: "You have crossed the Rubicon, Por tales Is all smiles and feels under last ing obligations to the 35th legislative assembly, to Governor Otero and our friends In Santa Fe who have aided us so efficiently In attaining our desires." Mr. Llndsey was greatly gratified at the receipt of this telegram. It is sign ed by several of the leading citizens of the town. Mr. Llndsey feels also under obligations to the New Mexican for the good and courageous work done In that good cause. During the discussion In the House Thursday on the amendment to the bill creating Leonard Wood county, that It be named Quay, in honor of the dlstin- guished senator who Is making such a determined fight on the omnibus state hood bill, the Hon. Pedro Sanchez dls- tinguished himself by an . eloqeunt speech In favor of the amendment. Af ter concluding his oration, Mr. Sanchez retired to the ante-room to cool oflf, and was agreeably surprised and probably delighted by having one of the lady em ployes throw her arms around him and plant a kiss of encouragement and ap preciation upon his furrowed cheek. The old hero of many battles upon the field and in debate refuses to throw a particle of light upon the Identity of his charming friend. This Incident Is a strong Incentive for other members of the House to cultivate the fetching gift of oratory. , ,' ; A WARM NUMBER.
